Sun City Girls were a collective of two brothers, Richard and Alan Bishop, along with their comrade Charles Gocher. Charlie passed away about a year ago of cancer, and the band ceased to exist. This record is a collection of the last studio recordings made by the band before Charlie's death. SCG are notoriously uneven, ranging from goofy collages and improvisations verging on stand-up comedy to modal post-punk to inauthentic "world" music from countries that only existed in the SCG's warped parallel universe. They can be profound and moving in one moment and boringly meandering in a lengthy improvisation the next, then turn to some arcane collage of goofiness that has you rolling on the floor the next moment.

But this, their final record, is anything but uneven. It is permeated by a deep gentleness and profound sadness, even while the band engages in some of their signature moves. What's missing is the meandering improvisation that is probably the least interesting work SCG did throughout their career. Instead, we have carefully composed songs, powerful and profound and, on the first track, goofy and collagey without being a mess. The album sounds like a funeral procession for Charles, and becomes more and more gorgeous and regal as it progresses. There is a stunning cover of the Ennio Morricone song "Come Magdelina" just before the end of the record.

This is definitely one of the SCG albums that you simply must have in your collection if you actually care about good music made in the USA after 1980.

I don't usually write 'reviews' ... so what the H am I doing this for now! A bit of Xmas Day fun, and cuz ... Hey Kids, These Guys are Really Finger Lickin' Good!!! Though I imagine anyone that has found their way here already knows that. Besides, you have your own ears and can tell whether you 'like' this kinda muzic yourself (some review, huh?!). BUT for my money, they reminded me of Old Papa Zappa and the Mothers. Yes, His High Holy Insolence Himself ... BUT with their own sound ... and therefore, their own Souls! ... that which is all too missing in this Day in Age (if you can even call it that - And please get your electric, self-stim buns off the fire - people need to eat off of that!). So I thought I'd just mention my tremulous little thoughts, in passing ... just for the h of it!
